I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at this year’s Design Week Portland! Even better, I’ll be introducing one of my idols, anthropologist Genevieve Bell from Intel! She’ll be talking about the Internet of Beings! The internet of animals is more than just Keyboard Cat and animated gifs. Intel’s in-house Anthropologist will explore what we learn from data mining animals.
What is Design Week Portland?
Short answer: it’s amazing and you should definetely participate!
Longer answer: Design Week Portland is a week-long, city-wide series of programs exploring the process, craft, and practice of design across all disciplines. Our mission is to increase appreciation and awareness about design and its far-reaching effects on matters of cultural and social relevance, including community development, education systems, and the economy.
Main Stage: April 15-16, 2016
Revolution Hall, Portland, OR
Two days of core programming before the festival kicks into independently organized Events and Open Houses. Register for the Main Stage!
The heart and soul of Design Week Portland is in these events, conceived and hosted by the creative community of an entire city. Most are free or low cost to make design accessible to all. Register for each event separately – there is no central pass. See Portland Design Week Independent Events.
Studios and offices around the city will open their doors to us to show what they’re working on! I’d highly suggest visiting as many as you can!
